Altamont teachers and school board come to agreement
A strike planned for this Thursday morning in Altamont did not take place.
The school board and teachers reached an agreement Wednesday night. The final meeting on Wednesday was a last ditch effort to get teachers and the school board to come to a decision before a planned strike, for this Thursday morning. Both parties have been working for the past seven months to agree on a contract.
The details of the agreement have not been released.
